We are running pfring, which is located in /usr/local/pfring/lib which shows up doing an ldconfig -v
libpfring.so -> libpfring.so
libpcap.so.1 -> libpcap.so.1.1.1
But I am seeing that libpcap.so.0.8 is being referenced in the error, is this the issue which has been plaguing me?

That usually means the linker can't resolve a path to that library. Did you link against a libpcap that's installed in a non-standard path? If `ldd /usr/local/bro/bin/bro` tells you it can't find libpcap, it's either really missing from your system or you need to teach the linker how to find it in a non-standard path.

Check your etc/broctl.cfg to see if the paths are as you expect. I think at least SpoolDir goes in to BROPATH and if you just copied the file from a previous install, then it's going to be wrong.
